What is Arthritis

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, with different causes and treatment methods. Two of the most common types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Symptoms

The symptoms for arthritis are usually joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. Your range of motion may also decrease, and you may experience redness of the skin around the joint. Many people with arthritis notice their symptoms are worse in the morning, whereas they may not be as bad during the evenings.

Methods to Help

We offer various forms of physical therapy to treat arthritis. Physical therapy is often recommended to help ease the pain of arthritis. It can strengthen the muscles that support your damaged joints, help reduce joint stiffness, and improve your range of motion.
